Description

Wind & Glass Soloists Scott Tinkler, Erkki Veltheim & The Young Wagilak Group led by Benjamin Wilfred Conducted by Brad Lubman

Two unique facets of Australian music will feature in this exciting collaboration. The manikay songcycles performed by the Young Wagilak Group from South-East Arnhem Land form part of the world's oldest continuous musical traditions. These beautiful, rugged songs of time and space will be performed in a setting never before attempted, realised by composer-performer Erkki Veltheim in Tract; the very old side-by-side with the very new. In his new work Glass, John Rodgers has created a concerto for improvising virtuoso Scott Tinkler, recognised as one of the most exciting voices on his instrument. We will also hear new music from the UK: the vibrant pop-influenced Neon by Tansy Davies and The Sinking of the Titanic by minimalist master Gavin Bryars with electronic material by Aphex Twin.
